Welcome to All Saints Church, Witley

All Saints Church, Witley, Surrey

New Year 2017

Everything is back in place again and we look forward to a wonderful concert in church on 21st January - details below.

This time of year can be rather stressful or dull after the Christmas celebrations, but it can also be a time to build on relationships, to just enjoy "being" and to plan for future events.

Six of our young people are working hard to raise funds for a visit to a developing school, the KWASA centre in Springs S. Africa. Mnay of the pupils there have no parents and rely on the school to support them. Our young people are joining with 14 others from Holy Trinity Guildford to spend 10 days helping at the school and experiencing a very different way of life. They have to fund themselves so there will be cake sales on Jan 22nd and Feb 5th after the services which are always very tempting. Please come along and support this if you like home-made cake!

All our services and groups are meeting as usual in January and February. CAMEO and Little Saints, meet in half term.

Happy new Year!

Concert in church - 21st January 2017
from our celebrated Flautist, Marlene Verwey and friends

In May 2016 some of us were lucky enough to attend a wonderful concert in the church given by flautist Marlene Verwey (named Rising Star by Sir James Galway at Weggis in 2012), (who lives in Witley), Anne Marshall, piano who is a regular accompanist for Sir James Galway; Internationally acclaimed organist, Herman Jordaan, organ and James Lyttle, bass who was a finalist on Channel 4's Operatunity . We are delighted that Marlene and her friends have kindly offered to give another concert on Saturday, 21st January 2017 in aid of All Saints Church. They will be joined by award winning violinist, Natasha Hall. We do hope you will join us for a real musical treat. It is rare to have the opportunity to hear such a talented group of musicians of such high calibre performing in the church. What better to brighten the dark days of January!

The parish of Witley is made up of the villages of Witley, Brook, Wormley and Sandhills. The Parish Church of All Saints dates from about 1040 and is situated just off the main Petworth Road (A283) in Church Lane, opposite the White Hart public house. Witley CofE Infant School is opposite the church and has close links with it.

Apart from a regular pattern of worship on Sundays and Holy Days, the church serves the whole parish and after recent refurbishment is available every day for a variety of uses. The door is open in daylight hours for anyone who may wish to spend a quiet few moments or longer in the peace and quiet of this ancient building.

The mission of the church in Witley is to bring the love of God to all who live and work there. The church is open to all people, and here to serve the entire parish. Everyone is welcome at all services and other events and anyone is welcome to use the space in church for their own charitable or social events where appropriate. Click here for more information on using the church for your event.

If you are new to the area you are very welcome! There are a wide range of activities going on around the church that may interest you.

A team of Pastoral Assistants visit the housebound, take Communion to those who can't get to church for whatever reason, and generally help the clergy keep an eye on pastoral needs.

Jane and Ann are always available to talk to and welcome you. Enjoy the web-site!
